Brick & Mortar Brand Featurette: Old Calgary (Florida)
Old Calgary’s sleek collection of wallets and sleeves has a simple message, which is just that: simplicity. Pairing fine German wool with Italian leathers sourced from Tuscany to create their streamlined accessories, Old Calgary brings the best materials in the world to their U.S. workshop. Their stylish-yet-sensible goods protect the things you care about most– the things you carry with you.
Our pick: “Proxima” iPad sleeve in Anthracite

Okay, okay, we admit it– we’ve succumbed to the influences of the fall lines that are now in full-swing. We’re looking at bright ginghams with just a hint of disgust lately, yawning a bit over the shorts we so excitedly mooned over only weeks ago. Our heart just isn’t in it lately. The truth is that summer is on its way out, and fall is on its way in, and with it comes such a comforting array of browns, grays and blacks that we’re quite frankly finding refreshing at this late stage of summer. We love the switch-over: that is, the day that the summerwear gets packed away and the fall/winter apparel shows its face once again. Which is exactly what this card case by Old Calgary reminds us of. The wool felt makes us think of colder weather and the tactile comforts that accompany it. Out with the old, in with the new. Now all you have to do is sweat out a few more weeks. Get it here.
